JL Audio's new CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover

The lucky few who have heard a well-integrated subwoofer in a great audio system know that the subwoofer's effect is profound. While everyone expects the bass extension to improve, most are shocked at the transformation that occurs in the main speakers. They simply open up, delivering improved dynamics, superior imaging and more low-level detail. Many describe it as the greatest speaker upgrade they have ever made.

Over the years, we have calibrated many subwoofer systems in highly critical listening environments, and we have been frustrated by the limitations of active crossovers we have worked with. Tired of struggling with "blunt instruments", we felt that a higher precision tool was needed, so we decided to build it and call it "CR-1". When properly set up, CR-1 creates a listening experience in which the subwoofers and main speakers become one, delivering a cohesive and compelling sonic presentation.

The CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover has been designed by audiophiles, for audiophiles. We believe it has no equal, offering a powerful combination of subwoofer/satellite tuning features, and a complete commitment to analogue signal purity.

CR-1 is built around two banks of precision Linkwitz-Riley low-pass and high-pass filters. Multiplying DACs with monolithic ratio matching are employed to adjust the analogue circuit's filter frequencies. This offers superior tracking behaviour and far more precise left/right channel balance, compared to conventional approaches.

Another of CR-1's unique and powerful features is a pair of rotary controls that control the damping of each filter bank. These damping controls dramatically improve the acoustic summing through the crossover region, by compensating for each speaker system's frequency response. At the center of the front panel, a single intuitive, rotary control permits quick adjustment of the relative level between the subwoofer(s) and main speakers.

To minimize distortion and noise, CR-1 employs top-grade component parts in its all-analogue audio circuitry: 1% precision resistors, JFET-input audio-grade op-amps, polypropylene film-and-foil capacitors and metallized-polypropylene film capacitors, to name just a few. We also build CR-1 right here in the U.S.A., to ensure top quality and dependability.

CR-1's input-output design makes it equally adaptable to studio, mastering suite or audiophile two-channel playback environments. To accommodate dual-mode systems, we also include a bypass feature that engages a pass-through from a dedicated "Managed Bass Input" on the rear panel, to the CR-1's subwoofer outputs. This makes it convenient to switch from two-channel to multi-channel mode.

CR-1 is the ultimate tool for subwoofer integration.

JL Audio powered subwoofers will unleash the full dynamics of your audio experience.

Our award-winning line up of powered subwoofer systems begins with proprietary subwoofer drivers and amplifier designs, precisely optimized for their intended physical envelopes and design goals. Because of this, they are not limited by which sub-assemblies are openly available on the world market. Instead, each system is fanatically engineered and precision-built in our Miramar, Florida factory to reflect our passion for spectacular audio and product quality.

Gotham®: Your first look will tell you that you are looking at something special... your first listening session will confirm it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Fathom®: Compact subwoofer systems for those who enjoy demanding program material and will not settle for compromises.

Fathom IWS®: There is no need to lower your expectations when selecting this remarkable in-wall solution... it's a real Fathom®.

E-Sub: These beautifully crafted powered subwoofers offer a compelling combination of high performance and outstanding value.

Dominion: Our latest solutions deliver a unique answer for applications that require a compact, more affordable subwoofer.

JL Audio JLINK™ RX Wireless, High-Fidelity Audio Add-on Receiver

Dominion™ powered subwoofers benefit from JL Audio’s expertise in driver and amplifier design to arrive at a unique solution for applications requiring a compact, more affordable subwoofer.

Unlike any other product in its price class, Dominion™ powered subwoofers combine a purpose engineered, DMA optimized, long excursion driver with an advanced Class D amplifier equipped with a tightly regulated switching power supply. Dominion™ powered subwoofers can be used in a variety of compact applications, including full home theater systems, media room systems, dedicated two-channel music systems, desktop audio workstations and small recording studios.

Born from JL Audio’s vast collection of advanced technologies, Dominion™ powered subwoofers combine a state-of-the-art subwoofer driver and an advanced Class D amplifier to deliver unmatched performance and value for a wide variety of compact applications.

Purpose-built to reproduce powerful low-frequency events with stunning impact and precision, the Dominion™ driver employs JL Audio’s exclusive DMA (Dynamic Motor Analysis) technology to produce higher output levels with reduced distortion, as well as improved dynamic tracking and resolution. As a result, Dominion™ subwoofers are capable of peak-to-peak excursions well in excess of 2.5-inches (63 mm - d108), and 2.7 inches (68 mm – d110), without distress or audible distortion.

Dominion™ amplifiers utilize an advanced Class D design in order to extract the most from the long-excursion driver platform. This design features a tightly regulated switching power supply, allowing the amplifier to generate prodigious amounts of unclipped output voltages. These technologies ensure that the Dominion™ powered subwoofers remain in their comfort zone, which is well beyond the point where most small subwoofers run out of power or driver capability.

With a host of signal processing features included, Dominion™ powered subwoofers can be integrated into most systems with ease. Low-pass signals are precisely guided, thanks to the onboard crossover’s 24 dB/octave Linkwitz-Riley alignment. Phase and polarity controls are onboard to aid in achieving the optimal acoustic transition between the subwoofer(s) and main speakers. Flexible input options are on-hand to accept either line-level or speaker-level signals. Connect a JLINK™ TRX system (sold separately) to the onboard Wireless Link port and enjoy the freedom to position your Dominion™ almost anywhere, up to 100 feet (30 meters) away from your source unit.

To contain the immense pressures created by the Dominion™ driver, each beautiful cabinet is carefully engineered and constructed using solid, CNC-cut, MDF material with extensive internal bracing and advanced assembly techniques. All Dominion™ powered subwoofers are built with pride and precision in JL Audio’s U.S. factory to deliver years of listening enjoyment.

Finishes: Gloss Black or Black Ash

Grille Finish: Black Fabric

Enclosure Construction: MDF

Gotham®: Your first look will tell you that you are looking at something special... your first listening session will confirm it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

While everyone expects the bass extension to improve, most are shocked at the transformation that occurs in the main speakers. They simply open up, delivering improved dynamics, superior imaging and more low-level detail. Many describe it as the greatest speaker upgrade they have ever made.

Over the years, we have calibrated many subwoofer systems in highly critical listening environments, and we have been frustrated by the limitations of active crossovers we have worked with. Tired of struggling with "blunt instruments", we felt that a higher precision tool was needed, so we decided to build it and call it "CR-1". When properly set up, CR-1 creates a listening experience in which the subwoofers and main speakers become one, delivering a cohesive and compelling sonic presentation.

The CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover has been designed by audiophiles, for audiophiles. We believe it has no equal, offering a powerful combination of subwoofer/satellite tuning features, and a complete commitment to analogue signal purity.

CR-1 is built around two banks of precision Linkwitz-Riley low-pass and high-pass filters. Multiplying DACs with monolithic ratio matching are employed to adjust the analogue circuit's filter frequencies. This offers superior tracking behaviour and far more precise left/right channel balance, compared to conventional approaches.

Another of CR-1's unique and powerful features is a pair of rotary controls that control the damping of each filter bank. These damping controls dramatically improve the acoustic summing through the crossover region, by compensating for each speaker system's frequency response. At the center of the front panel, a single intuitive, rotary control permits quick adjustment of the relative level between the subwoofer(s) and main speakers.

To minimize distortion and noise, CR-1 employs top-grade component parts in its all-analogue audio circuitry: 1% precision resistors, JFET-input audio-grade op-amps, polypropylene film-and-foil capacitors and metallized-polypropylene film capacitors, to name just a few. We also build CR-1 right here in the U.S.A., to ensure top quality and dependability.

CR-1's input-output design makes it equally adaptable to studio, mastering suite or audiophile two-channel playback environments. To accommodate dual-mode systems, we also include a bypass feature that engages a pass-through from a dedicated "Managed Bass Input" on the rear panel, to the CR-1's subwoofer outputs. This makes it convenient to switch from two-channel to multi-channel mode.

CR-1 is the ultimate tool for subwoofer integration.

JL Audio's new CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover

The lucky few who have heard a well-integrated subwoofer in a great audio system know that the subwoofer's effect is profound. While everyone expects the bass extension to improve, most are shocked at the transformation that occurs in the main speakers. They simply open up, delivering improved dynamics, superior imaging and more low-level detail. Many describe it as the greatest speaker upgrade they have ever made.

Over the years, we have calibrated many subwoofer systems in highly critical listening environments, and we have been frustrated by the limitations of active crossovers we have worked with. Tired of struggling with "blunt instruments", we felt that a higher precision tool was needed, so we decided to build it and call it "CR-1". When properly set up, CR-1 creates a listening experience in which the subwoofers and main speakers become one, delivering a cohesive and compelling sonic presentation.

The CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover has been designed by audiophiles, for audiophiles. We believe it has no equal, offering a powerful combination of subwoofer/satellite tuning features, and a complete commitment to analogue signal purity.

CR-1 is built around two banks of precision Linkwitz-Riley low-pass and high-pass filters. Multiplying DACs with monolithic ratio matching are employed to adjust the analogue circuit's filter frequencies. This offers superior tracking behaviour and far more precise left/right channel balance, compared to conventional approaches.

Another of CR-1's unique and powerful features is a pair of rotary controls that control the damping of each filter bank. These damping controls dramatically improve the acoustic summing through the crossover region, by compensating for each speaker system's frequency response. At the center of the front panel, a single intuitive, rotary control permits quick adjustment of the relative level between the subwoofer(s) and main speakers.

To minimize distortion and noise, CR-1 employs top-grade component parts in its all-analogue audio circuitry: 1% precision resistors, JFET-input audio-grade op-amps, polypropylene film-and-foil capacitors and metallized-polypropylene film capacitors, to name just a few. We also build CR-1 right here in the U.S.A., to ensure top quality and dependability.

CR-1's input-output design makes it equally adaptable to studio, mastering suite or audiophile two-channel playback environments. To accommodate dual-mode systems, we also include a bypass feature that engages a pass-through from a dedicated "Managed Bass Input" on the rear panel, to the CR-1's subwoofer outputs. This makes it convenient to switch from two-channel to multi-channel mode.

CR-1 is the ultimate tool for subwoofer integration.

CR-1 RRP £3249

JL Audio JLINK™ RX Wireless, High-Fidelity Audio Add-on Receiver

Dominion™ powered subwoofers benefit from JL Audio’s expertise in driver and amplifier design to arrive at a unique solution for applications requiring a compact, more affordable subwoofer.

Unlike any other product in its price class, Dominion™ powered subwoofers combine a purpose engineered, DMA optimized, long excursion driver with an advanced Class D amplifier equipped with a tightly regulated switching power supply. Dominion™ powered subwoofers can be used in a variety of compact applications, including full home theater systems, media room systems, dedicated two-channel music systems, desktop audio workstations and small recording studios.

Born from JL Audio’s vast collection of advanced technologies, Dominion™ powered subwoofers combine a state-of-the-art subwoofer driver and an advanced Class D amplifier to deliver unmatched performance and value for a wide variety of compact applications.

Purpose-built to reproduce powerful low-frequency events with stunning impact and precision, the Dominion™ driver employs JL Audio’s exclusive DMA (Dynamic Motor Analysis) technology to produce higher output levels with reduced distortion, as well as improved dynamic tracking and resolution. As a result, Dominion™ subwoofers are capable of peak-to-peak excursions well in excess of 2.5-inches (63 mm - d108), and 2.7 inches (68 mm – d110), without distress or audible distortion.

Dominion™ amplifiers utilize an advanced Class D design in order to extract the most from the long-excursion driver platform. This design features a tightly regulated switching power supply, allowing the amplifier to generate prodigious amounts of unclipped output voltages. These technologies ensure that the Dominion™ powered subwoofers remain in their comfort zone, which is well beyond the point where most small subwoofers run out of power or driver capability.

With a host of signal processing features included, Dominion™ powered subwoofers can be integrated into most systems with ease. Low-pass signals are precisely guided, thanks to the onboard crossover’s 24 dB/octave Linkwitz-Riley alignment. Phase and polarity controls are onboard to aid in achieving the optimal acoustic transition between the subwoofer(s) and main speakers. Flexible input options are on-hand to accept either line-level or speaker-level signals. Connect a JLINK™ TRX system (sold separately) to the onboard Wireless Link port and enjoy the freedom to position your Dominion™ almost anywhere, up to 100 feet (30 meters) away from your source unit.

To contain the immense pressures created by the Dominion™ driver, each beautiful cabinet is carefully engineered and constructed using solid, CNC-cut, MDF material with extensive internal bracing and advanced assembly techniques. All Dominion™ powered subwoofers are built with pride and precision in JL Audio’s U.S. factory to deliver years of listening enjoyment.

Finishes: Gloss Black or Black Ash

Grille Finish: Black Fabric

Enclosure Construction: MDF
